As part of the expert appraisal, the number and use of photo-voltaic facilities in four north-eastern Brazilian states (Ceará, Paraíba, Pernambuco and Roraima) were determined. Furthermore, an analysis of promoting and obstructive factors as well as an estimate of the technical condition of the facilities were carried out.

Sector analyses regarding solar energy production and usage in Brazil and Baden-Württemberg were implemented with the objective of identifying co-operation opportunities in this field of technology. To this end, 350 solar technology companies of Baden-Württemberg were registered and classified.

With this information as a basis, a project proposal of SENAI regarding the promotion of solar technology training and further education in Brazil was examined and conceptually developed further, taking the technological potential of Baden-Württemberg into account. The project proposal includes the training of multipliers, curricula development, delivery of material equipment and the implementation of measures for the promotion of the private economy.

The results of the expert appraisal were conveyed to interested companies in a workshop.
